    Got to admit I love the anti-piracy ad though.

    "You wouldn't steal an handbag"

    Really? You don't even know me! Maybe I would? What are the circumstances? What if there was £1,000,000 cash in there? You telling me you woudn't be tempted?

    "You wouldn't steal a car"

    Again with the presumptions! Maybe I just stole that handbag with £1,000,000 cash in it and the police are chasing me. Tell you what that car is now looking quiet tempting!

    i think the best thing to happen to the music industry is Spotify...

    -Don't want to pay, have adverts and a few less features (offline playlists, etc)
    -Want to pay, don't have adverts, have extra features...

    To quote the meerkat "simples", shame the film industry hasn't followed suite.

    I use lovefilm.com for DVD/Bluray/Xbox360/PS3 rentals (average 6 disks a week), and have a Cineworld Unlimited card so I see every new film that comes out, I happily pay for it and if there is a film I like enough to get the DVD/BluRay I will pay that cost too, but only because I know I will get at least several viewings of the DVD; I currently own over 400 legal DVDs and every one of them has had at least 4-5 viewings over the past 6 years of my collecting, I usually watch at least 1 a night.

    I don't care about the ads/warnings etc, I just put the dvd on and then go make a cup of tea or something, come back and it's ready to go: it's called planning ahead people! lol and I can't honestly say I've come accross that many DVDs where you can't skip almost all of the ads/warnings or just press "menu" twice to start the film, and most of the BluRay's I've rented so far go straight to playing the film without pressing a single button!

    The one thing I refuse to pay DVD/BluRay prices for is TV shows, especially if I want to watch something from years ago (ie The Original Series of Star Trek), the price of the DVD/BluRay for TV is ridiculous, so I get those solely on rental.

    Try we7.com too.

    Runs in browser, so no download. and the more you listen to the more 'advert free days' you earn too.

    Their catalog is slightly different too - some things still missing from each though.
